Braden Bohannon is a man for all seasons. His favorite sport is the one he’s currently competing in.
Right now, Bohannon is focused on football, and it’s full speed ahead.
On Friday night, Bohannon’s gridirion prowess was on full display, during the Elco Raiders’ 40-10 home victory over Annville-Cleona. The senior quarterback rushed for 147 yards and four touchdowns.
Bohannon tallied the Raiders’ first two touchdowns, as Elco opened a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. He ran one in from 11 yards away, then ripped off a 15-yard TD scamper.
But the Bohannon touchdown run that may have been the most important of the evening was the six-yarder he scored only nine seconds before the break. That gave Elco a 28-7 advantage.
Bohannon recorded his fourth touchdown with 3:16 remaining in the third quarter.
Partly through his efforts, Elco improved to 2-0 on the fall.
In the winter and spring, Bohannon is also a skilled contributor to the Raider basketball and baseball squads.
